Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth have been married for only about a month, so much is probably still new to them—including, apparently, hearing the actual words husband and wife said out loud. This is exactly what happened at the G’Day USA Gala in Los Angeles over the weekend: Hemsworth was honored at the annual event with the Excellence in Film Award, and in his speech he called Cyrus his “beautiful wife.” Her reaction, naturally, was so sweet.
“Thank you to my beautiful wife,” Hemsworth says in the speech, which causes Cyrus’ jaw to drop and the audience to rupture in applause. Her shock then turns into a smile as Hemsworth continues singing her praises.
“You are a sweet, sweet angel,” he says. “Yeah, I love you! You’re great!”
Cyrus then jokes at Hemsworth to “keep going” with the compliments, causing the audience to crack up. “There’s more! There’s more about me,” she says.
“I’ll tell you later,” Hemsworth responds cheekily. Their banter is very on point!

Cyrus gave a sweet tribute of her own to Hemsworth on his birthday January 13.
“I love those little lines around your eyes when you laugh or look into the sun…. I love the way we speak in our own language. Sometimes with just a look,” she wrote in a lengthy Instagram post. “I love laying on the couch eating Chinese when we’re hung over from the night before. I love going to a random party and remembering basically everyone is fake AF out here and how lucky I am to share a life with someone so REAL. I love the way you always listen & the way that you care… (Even when it’s about RuPaul’s Drag Race.) I love having a teeth brushin’ partner & when I’m lazy how you’ll comb my hair.”
